“It was an accident, Officer. You see my friend here…” I looked around to indicate the girl I had just met. She had disappeared.
“Well, anyway. She’s also a student. From Australia. She showed me this fancy boomerang. The latest in technology, she said. You can even programme it on your cell phone.” I held out the shiny metal object. “Then she said she’d give me a hundred dollars if I could loop it around the statue and retrieve it.”
The policeman fished a packet of white powder from the statue’s broken arm. “You’d better come with me,” he said.
